Subsequently, she pursued specialty training as a zoological medicine intern at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, and then as a zoological medicine and surgery resident at the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York. When not working you can find her hiking with her dogs, exploring the local food scene, and spending time with family and friends.
